Subject: [gentoo-user] About procmail and getline

1 Trying to install procmail I hit a known bug:
5 And from emerge:
6 [...]
7 In file included from formail.c:25:
8 formisc.h:20: error: conflicting types for 'getline'
9 /usr/include/stdio.h:651: error: previous declaration of 'getline'
10 was here
11 make[1]: *** [formail.o] Error 1
12 make[1]: Leaving directory
13 `/var/tmp/portage/mail-filter/procmail-3.22-r10/work/procmail-3.22/src'
15 What I'm not understanding is why the current procmail is not flagged
16 in some way... or why its still not fixed and is buggy to install with
17 most recent OS and most recent tools.
19 Its not, apparently a local phenomina, if its a known bug. Or are
20 there people who have been able to install procmail with no problems
21 using current tools?
23 Even downloading the tar ball and building outside of emerge I hit the
24 getline problem, so apparently something incompatible there.
26 There is a patch offered but still one would think using standard
27 emerge on a package that is outside the `~' daredevil stage and is not
28 masked, it should `just work' [tm].
